Best boots out of the box
I use these boots for work and bird hunting.. My first pair lasted 2 years. They are so comfy and supportive right out of the box I just love them. There is very little break in time. I ware them at least 10 to 12 hrs a day 5-6 days a week In all kinds of conditions from standing water, muddy ditches, basements full of sewage water, so the boot being waterproof is a real advantage. I usually have to replace the laces 2-3 times a year. My soles on the first pair did crack the last 6 months I had them. I only noticed because I read the reviews on the web. I bought some work boots from sears and the break in takes too long. Went on line and bought another pair of vasques. I've also pulled nails and staples from the sole that never got to my foot.
